Design for Healthy Aging: Solutions Across the Continuum of Care

August 17-18, 2022 | USA

Design for Healthy
As individuals age, physical, mental, and societal challenges become more prevalent. This intensive virtual workshop explores those obstacles and discusses programming and design interventions that can assist individuals and care givers. Expert faculty will present examples that integrate architecture,

According to physicians and researchers who use proton beam therapy, the technology is a long-needed, excellent alternative to use of conventional x-ray (photon) radiation for selected patients. In tumors that are too close to critical organs, the benefit of precisely targeting protons only on the target tumor produces fewer side effects than x-ray’s broader and deeper shaft of radiation. While x-rays travel through the body in a straight line without stopping, protons are targeted to the precise location of the tumor and do not exit out the other side. In that way, proton beam therapy substantially limits collateral damage to organs and tissue, and offers the possibility of using higher doses of radiation for more beneficial outcomes.
